How much money will you need for retirement? This a very difficult question to answer. There are many factors and assumptions that go into estimating the income that will be needed in retirement. However, one certainty is that if you only invest in fixed income instruments, you will need more than if your investments provide you a growing income.

Below are several companies that are providing their shareholders a growing income with higher cash dividends:
